  • Words and a grateful heart of thanksgiving by Jackie Henderson

    The majority of what we hear from the media is disturbing. The effect is evident upon our population's attitude. Like an old song said, "You've got to spread joy up to the maximum. Bring gloom down to the minimum. Otherwise pandemonium is liable to walk upon the scene." Every day when I call my mom, she sings her version of a song from Bing Crosby's movie, "On the Road to Morocco." "What did Noah say when everything looked so dark" "With Jonah in the whale and Noah in the Ark?" "You've got to ac…

  • Judging in the best sense of the term by Jessica Tanner

    Most of us recoil in horror at the idea of being "judgmental." My Bible wisdom verse this morning argues for a near 180 on that idea. Judge if you must but do it right. "A gracious woman retaineth honor, and strong men retain riches." - Proverbs 11:16. These Bible proverbs often put things side by side, like a good idea next to a bad one to get us to decide what they mean. This one took a while to unpack, but the meaning is worth it. One has to look hard to find where good trumps evil in real li…

  • Member Feedback - Kathy Baily Gibson

    We received this lovely email from one of our new members, Kathy Baily Gibson... I am so thankful Betty invited me this morning for the critique group! I had just voiced to the Lord how valuable it would be to be part a writers' group for just this thing. Yesterday. And I get online to view my messages at 11:00 my time and there is the invitation, God so clearly answered my prayer. And there was Betty Slade and there you all were! I was a member of the Southwest Christian Writers for maybe ten y…

  • A Legacy of Encouragement by Richard Gammill

    "Jack, pick up, sweetie, can you hear me? OK. I just want to tell you, there's a little problem with the plane. I'm fine. I'm totally fine. I just want to tell you how much I love you." Lauren Catuzzi Gradcolas left that message on her husband's answering machine on September 11, 2001. She called from United Airlines Flight 93. Was this her last message? Not at all. Lauren was returning home to San Rafael, Calif., after attending her grandmother's funeral, when she boarded the flight from Newark…

  • The Camo Pajama Game by Betty J Slade

    "Heaven forbid! When are you going to take off those pajamas so I can wash them?" My Sweet Al wears his favorite camouflage pajama bottoms all year-round - to take out the trash, work in the garage, even to work on the cars. But at this time of year, he just won't take them off. Is this what it means, "Be instant in season and out of season?" If you're a hunter, apparently this is how things are. A hunter is always ready to spot a deer or elk, even if only wearing concealing flannel. Not yet hun…
